Starving Americans that participate in charitable programs, have a greater tendency to develop diabetes, obesity and hypertension, than other U.S. citizens have.
This is the conclusion of experts from nongovernmental organization Feeding America. It turned out that most of poor people receiving allowances spend money on potato chips, soda drinks and fast food.
During the survey, 60 thousand of poor people were interviewed all over the USA. Almost 80% of respondents said that spend their allowances for fast food. The truth is that hamburgers, chips, soda drinks are much cheaper than healthy foods and they satisfy hunger much faster too. Namely these junk foods lead to high index of obesity among poor Americans.
The problem becomes worse because you can hardly find a store with healthy food at affordable price around neighborhoods where poor people live.
The results of this survey have shown that
• About 33% of American people are diabetic patients.
• About 60% of poor Americans are hypertonic patients.
Moreover, specialists from Feeding America have established that over 55% of interviewed U.S. residents eat expired foods. Another one popular solution 50% of starving Americans use – they buy products with damaged packaging.
The paradox is that poor Americans choose foods that quickly satisfies hunger, yet contains insufficient amount of healthy nutrients. The consumption of such foods violates the metabolism and causes weight gain. Thus, for most poor Americans, obesity becomes kind of side effect of starvation.
When people have no money for healthy food, then they cannot afford effective methods to struggle with obesity either. Because if you cannot lose weight using non-drug methods of anti-obesity therapy, you need diet pills and many of them are available in the USA by prescription.
• The most prescribed diet pills in the USA are Adipex and Xenical, but the newest ones – Qsymia and Belviq.
• The marketing status of Xenical (Orlistat), Adipex (Phentermine), Belviq (Lorcaserin) and Qsymia (Phentermine; Topiramate) in the USA – RX only.
Even if a poor American has money to buy some prescription diet pills, the access is still limited. First of all, he needs to consult a doctor and undergo a complex medical examination to be able to get the diet pills.
Considering that the overwhelming majority of poor Americans cannot afford to pay the services of doctor specializing on obesity therapy, they have to give up the fight against obesity, or use some accessible over-the-counter diet pills for weight loss.
